REGISTERING YOUR STUDENT FOR THIS FALL
Registration for the 2020-21 school year is to be completed online and is well underway. All families need to register returning students by going to https://www.saintpeterslincoln.com/registration--tuition.html and using the “Snapcode” (unique for each returning student) which can be found in the letter you received last month. The directions on the link will lead you through the process. NOTE: If you will have a student who will be new to St. Peter (i.e., Pre-K or Kindergarten), you will also go to this website but click on “New Student Registration” because your new student does not have a Snapcode.

These books are again available to parents for their students. Since the COVID-19 outbreak has caused many school buildings to close indefinitely, delivering Summer Solutions books to the school will be impractical. Therefore, Simple Solutions is offering an easy way for you to still get the books you need. Instead of having your Summer Solutions books distributed at school, your books will now be delivered directly to your home. Each book is $15.99, which includes shipping. If you have already placed your order, your books are currently being shipped to the school; and we will let you know when your book is in. If you have not already placed your order, go to www.summersolutions.net and enter our NEW school code SUF44260. There is no expiration date for ordering. You can use this code to order books throughout the summer.
